The cognitive dissonance on the Left is amazing.
Last night on the CBS Evening News, Katie Couric interviewed New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, a non-affiliated party member, and asked him his thoughts on who it was that planted the bomb in New York’s Times Square and what were the motives behind it.
Mayor Bloomberg’s comments are incredulous to say the least (emphasis mine):
“Home-grown, maybe a mentally deranged person or somebody with a political agenda that doesn’t like the health care bill…”
…the health care bill Mr. Bloomberg?
As in the Tea Party Movement participants?
You have got to be kidding me.
The hate and deception on the left is unfathomable.
Why do they, liberals*, want to paint the Tea Party Movement as bad as possible and at incredible lengths?
I am no psychologist, but this is getting ridiculous.
As for being homegrown, FBI agents have arrested Faisal Shahzad in New York, an American who was born and raised in Pakistan of Kashmiri descent, in connection to the Times Square bomb.
Mr. Shahzad has already admitted his involvement.
In addition he also received militant training in northwest Pakistan under Tariq Afridi, who is the main Pakistan Taliban commander in the area.
Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan, a Muslim terrorist group in Pakistan, has already claimed responsibility and there have been a flurry of arrests in Pakistan itself in relation to the Times Square bomb.
So that knocks out our intellectual superior Mr. Bloomberg’s theory out of the water right there.
* When an elected official, ie, the mayor of America’s largest city, says kooky things as in above it is very difficult to not blame liberals in general. You all voted for him so if the shoe fits…
